Plantation O.F.T.D. Overproof Rum
Dark Rum /69% ABV / Barbados
- Dark Rum
Plantation O.F.T.D (Old Fashioned Traditional Dark) is a high-strength blend of rums from Barbados, Guyana and Jamaica. Rich and warming with notes of spice, coffee, orange and clove, this is excellent in tiki cocktails. In partnership with Alexandre Gabriel, Master Blender of Plantation Rum, this boldly flavored blend was created by an all-star cast of world-renowned tiki and rum experts: Jeff "Beachbum" Berry (New Orleans), Martin Cate (San Francisco), Paul McFayden (London), Paul McGee (Chicago), Scotty Schuder (Paris), and David Wondrich (NYC). O.F.T.D. behaves extremely well in punches and swizzles, or wherever rich aroma, color, and proof are needed to make tropical cocktails sing. Recommended cocktails: Planters Punch, Zombie, Navy Grog, Rum Old Fashioned, Cobra's Fang.View all products by PlantationCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING

It is an excellent addition to any tiki drink makers collection. It has a flavor that recalls some of those original tiki rums that are no longer available. Being overproof at 69% it can provide an extra potency to an already flavorful drink, or a very tasty float in place of a 151 for a less potency. It straddles that chasm quite well.
